Does He Give Really Good Head?

In the beginning, he is sweet, attentive, and the chemistry is obvious.  The thought of seeing him gives you butterflies and he makes you giggle like a teenage girl. When he touches you, you shiver involuntarily and his kiss makes you float like Tinkerbelle.  Your feelings are bubbling over in

Signs Of An Emotional Rapist

I’ll be honest. I’ve had my fair share of women and still do. But I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I’ve been honest and straight up with whomever I’ve come across. My friendships with women seldom end on bad terms, and not one female can make the claim

Take Responsibility For Your Actions

A few weeks back while having a lively discussion in The Conversation Continues (TCC) it was stated that often times African-Americans want to fall back on racial issues as the reason why we are a certain way without ever accepting responsibility for anything. That got me to thinking; what things

Love the One You Love

Relationships are tough.  Sometimes they are so tough you just want to throw in the tile.  But you know, that may not be the right choice.  So what do you do then? Maybe since I’m miserable, I might as well make it miserable for everyone around me also.  Yeah, I

SMDH:I’ve Never Been Caught…Till Now! (pt.2)

I won’t lie, the time in between NOT hearing from my beau (Prototype) to when he texted me at one o’clock in the morning four days later saying “Why did you hurt me?” …was killer. And all I can say is karma is a b*tch with blonde hair and a

No Pain, No Gain

Every morning around 5:30AM, I wake up to endure an intense cardio work-out. For 30 minutes, I push myself through several reps of strategic moves that target specific areas of my body.

SMDH: I’ve Never Been Caught…Till Now!

I did something dumb the other day, I’ll admit, out of boredom. I had two and half hours to kill before I had to go to work, and it just so happen that I was around the corner from Corporate Thug’s house. I was looking cute in my little sundress,

What A Strong Black Woman REALLY Needs

There are many misconceptions about STRONG black women that I would like to formally dismiss.  Granted these misconceptions were likely formed because for the last 30 years women have been thumping their chests and proclaiming independence, afflicted with the “I Don’t Need A Man Syndrome”.  As a result I wonder

There’s Nothing Perfect About It

I took a trip some time back to Colorado and I must say that I didn’t know Colorado had that much of nothing out there…almost as bad as driving from San Antonio to El Paso in Texas.  Nonetheless, as I was driving back to my hotel in Colorado Springs, I

“What’s wrong?” We’ve all been in a position where these two words questioned our well-being.

I pondered, “Why Are All of These Beautiful Women Single?” Right off the bat let me make it very clear: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING SINGLE. Being single is only an issue for those who don’t want to be and can’t figure out why. Unsurprisingly, I am going to be
